We need volunteers!

Franklin and Macon County: We need volunteers this season more than ever!  

We are working to prepare a fun spring season, and we have needs in several areas - this season we are facing a volunteer shortage and we are hoping to find those of you who can volunteer an hour or two a week during the season.

This Saturday the 28th we are holding our annual Soccer Day event at the Fun Factory. This is a time when you can meet with our board members and ask questions or find out more about our plans for the season. If you think you can help out, stop by between 5-8 pm and look for us at the table near the front entrance.

We need help in many areas, including:
  • Field maintenance
  • Lining (painting) fields
  • photography
  • early morning setup
  • community relations
  • coordination & communication

Volunteer coaches needed!

Our club depends on volunteer coaches to share their time with kids - and we want to encourage more parents and volunteers to become youth coaches. Being a coach doesn't require a lot of extra time - just a bit of energy and the willingness to help kids grow their passion for soccer.

If you've never coached before, we can help with training. The club is hosting Youth I and Youth II training on March 7th at the Community Building, and will pay for the course. If you're ready to accept the challenge, you can start off in two ways:

* Check the box 'Coach' or 'Assistant' in the application when you register your player. We will contact you.
 -- or --
* Use the contact form to send a message that you would like to coach and attend training. We will send details about registering for the course. It's important to indicate your interest and sign up this week - practices will begin soon (see the calendar on the post after this one)
